Earlier there were pictures doing the rounds on the web, where Thala Ajith was seen mentoring the students from IIT Madras to design a drone. Later, the reports suggested that the superstar is going out of his way to help the government to spray disinfectants across a large area of land with the help of technology. As the battle against COVID-19 continues, the Nerkonda Paarvai actor had taken an initiative to curb the spread of the virus. With the help of a team ( IIT Madras students) named Daksha, the actor designed a high capacity drone. This drone can reportedly spray 16 litres of anti-microbial organic disinfectants. And speaking of the area, it can cover one acre in 30 minutes.
Watch Thala Ajith’s Nerkonda Paarvai here:
Recently, Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister, Dr Ashwathnarayan CN took to the micro-blogging site to announce the deployment of these new drones. In a tweet, he not only praised the team Daksha for developing drones to combat the COVID-19 but also thanked the South Indian superstar, Thala Ajith for giving his time for a cause and mentoring the children to create something that’s beyond our imagination. Time and again, technology has proven to be an effective countermeasure for most of the problems.
Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister, Dr Ashwathnarayan CN tweet read, “Kudos to Team #Dhaksha, mentored by filmstar #AjithKumar, for developing a way to sanitize large areas against COVID-19 via disinfectant drones. Time and again, technology has proven to be critical in the fight against #COVID-19! @sugaradhana (sic).” Alongside his tweet, Dr Ashwathnarayan CN also shared several pictures of the new disinfectant drones.

As we can see in the pictures, the drones have four rotors of two propellers each. Also, the two of the drones took off in the presence of Ashwathnarayan to disinfect the area. However, we are yet to know about how many drones will be deployed or for how many days will it be done.
Meanwhile, recently when Ajith and Shalini visited the hospital amid coronavirus lockdown, it left Thala’s fans worried. It was speculated that the actor might have been infected by the Coronavirus. However, the reports later suggested that it was only a regular follow-up checkup related to his past surgery. The fans then heaved a sigh of relief.
On the professional front, Thala Ajith, who was last seen in H. Vinoth’s Nerkonda Paarvai, will next be seen in an action thriller titled Valimai, directed by the same filmmaker. Starring Huma Qureshi and Kartikeya Gummakonda in essential roles, the film is produced by renowned filmmaker and late Sridevi’s husband Boney Kapoor.
